PALMYRA, Mo. — United Way of the Mark Twain Area will be the host of a fundraiser for moms who need a night out to enjoy themselves without kids before kicking off the holiday season.

Mom Prom will be held from 7-11 p.m. Nov. 11 at the Olive Branch Event Venue in Palmyra. Tickets are on sale now.

Attendees are encouraged to get out a vintage prom dress, dust off an old bridesmaid dress or hit up a local thrift store to find the perfect dress for the event. Prizes will be awarded for the best vintage dress, best bridesmaid dress, and best thrift find.
